Q: what other motor can i use to replace the other motor

asked by on

the timing chain was put back wrong

My car has 216 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. I only recommend putting in the same mode of engine that came out. So in this case you should only put another 4.6L V8 in your Expedition. Any other motor is going to require extensive work to install.
